Botox is a nonsurgical treatment for helping you regain a more youthful appearance. It can also help you appear more rested. At Magnolia Dermatology, Dr. Joseph Myers is your dermatologist for Botox in Charleston, SC.
How can Botox treatments help me?
Botox can help you look younger, rested, and refreshed. Botox accomplishes these things by giving you smoother skin and minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox can help minimize frown lines, crows feet, forehead lines, and more. Botox is most often used to achieve younger looking skin on the face, neck, and chest. Following treatment, your skin will look rejuvenated.
How does Botox work?
Botox smooths out lines and wrinkles by relaxing muscle tissue. Botox is injected directly into the muscle tissue in areas where smoother skin is desired. Once injected into the muscle tissue, Botox makes it difficult for muscles to contract, which is one cause of lines and wrinkles. When muscle tissue cannot contract as readily and is more relaxed, skin will appear smoother. Additionally, the appearance of lines and wrinkles will be diminished.
Do Botox injections hurt?
Most patients experience little to no pain or discomfort when undergoing Botox treatment at our Charleston office, although some might experience mild discomfort from the injection. For patients who are concerned about discomfort, it is often possible to use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area prior to administering the injection. Following treatment, recovery time is minimal.
How soon will I see the benefits of Botox treatment?
The positive effects of Botox can be observed immediately after treatment. Your skin will be visibly smoother with fewer lines and wrinkles at the end of your treatment session. Plus, you continue to enjoy improved results for up to two weeks when maximum results will be visible. The results of Botox treatment usually last for several months before additional treatment is needed.
